When will Hezbollah’s terrorism crumble?

Not only did the Iranian Hezbollah enjoy control over Lebanon’s border crossings, but it also implemented policies that served the Iranian agenda at the expense of Lebanon’s and Lebanese interests, paving the way for it to control all state sectors, including the judiciary, until it became the ruler and sole commander.

In a phone interview with Sawt Beirut International, MP Imad Wakim confirmed that “Hezbollah has exploited all of the Lebanese economic, financial, military, and judicial capabilities through its control of the government and the use of ministries to implement the interests of Iran and the Syrian regime.”

According to Wakim, “Hezbollah’s supply of dangerous weapons, its involvement in smuggling, and other corrupt and illegal activities hinders the role of legitimate state institutions, depriving the Lebanese people of the ability to build a peaceful, prosperous, and stable country with independent judicial legitimacy.”

Wakim emphasized that disarming Hezbollah is “no longer only a Lebanese demand, but has also become a worldwide and Arab-Gulf demand.” It is an armed military and security apparatus in Iran’s hands, nothing more, nothing less, and the problem has spread beyond its weaponry to its deadly ideological and security structure, which sanctifies Lebanese blood and impedes the investigation into the case of the largest explosion in his country’s history.”

“In order for Lebanon to recover from its crisis, it must disarm Hezbollah in compliance with Security Council resolutions that mandate the disarmament of all militias in Lebanon,” Wakim concluded.
